Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
“The setting has lost none of its wow-factor” at this “river-view” dining room – a stunning vantage-point (binoculars are provided!) Since Jeremy Lee left a couple of years ago, some reports suggest the cooking has “lost its pizazz”, but ratings aren’t so bad, and in truth the food’s never been the main point here.
“If you can’t get romantic with the amazing views of the Thames and Tower Bridge here, best settle down to the single life!”; predictably though “it’s the venue that impresses” – even fans say the food “won’t blow your socks off”, and to critics it’s plain “lazy”.
“Ask for a window table, to enjoy the great view of the Thames” (and Tower Bridge) – the main reason to seek out this first-floor South Bank restaurant; the food is “good, without being great”, and service is on the “poor” side.
You’ll be “bowled over by the views” of Tower Bridge (“they put binoculars on every table”), at this South Bank D&D group restaurant; it’s striking how little survey feedback it has inspired since its longtime former chef departed – this averages out somewhere round “OK”.
